This week, travel has been on my mind. Now that Raj is off on her adventure to India, it has me looking forward to the trips that we will be going this year. I mean it’s not as exciting as India but I am pretty stoked to be taking some trips and that’s what I’m going to share with you today.
1. Family Reunion
We are in the midst of planning a late Spring family reunion with my moms side of the family. It is something we do every two years with some aunts, uncles and cousins. But my last time joining in was 2009, when I was pregnant with my first.
After that, traveling with babies just did not seem like a vacation to me! So we took a hiatus on faraway vacations until the kids were older. And now they are! At 5 and 3, I think both the kids and I are ready for a more. This year it looks like it is going to be a cruise or an all-inclusive at an exotic destination and I can’t wait. Do you have any favourite cruise lines or all-inclusive resorts that would be great for everyone from toddlers and parents, to singles and seniors? I’m all ears.
2. Back to where they were born
Many people don’t know this, but both of my kids were born in Winnipeg. Even though we’ve been back in Vancouver for the last couple of years, we haven’t forgotten about their birthplace and where I spent six years of my life. We all made lots of great friends that we miss and there are so many fun things to do in Winnipeg, for real! This summer, the hubby has a conference in Winnipeg so we are all tagging along and we are going to make a vacation of it. I can’t wait!
3. A long-standing tradition
Since I was four-years old, every summer, my parents would take us on a road trip to Penticton and we always had an amazing time. There is so much to do! A beautiful beach, and all the fun that comes along with the lake, horseback riding, bbq’s, golfing, amusement parks, hikes, cherry picking and more!
When I moved away, we couldn’t go anymore but after we moved back to Vancouver, I decided to restart the tradition with my kids. Last year we went with my parents, and the kids didn’t want to leave. We are already planning this years trip and I almost feel like a kid again myself. Do you have a road trip tradition with your family?
